Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah, but it's interpretation dear boy. you cna listne to a whole raft of recordings of any piece of scored music and they should all be different. Some to quite marked extents.

One recorded with instruments made to the same limitations as that of the era of the composer and recorded in a concert setting will be profoundly different from one with modern instrumentation in a controlled sound studio.

In rock, the studio and live environments are chalk and cheese, not least because of the visceral quality introduced by volume and social setting in the live environment.

It's the same music on paper, but the experience is another thing.

yes but it is your ability and imagination to be able to experience it that is ultimately important - in the same way as an abstract painting or a poem can tell you more about yourself than about the creator.
